TrekRanks Episode 74: Top 5 Picard Episodes

Originally released on January 16, 2020

Listen to the show :

Our third and final episode of TrekRanks previewing the Star Trek: Picard series is as big a topic as we've ever tackled. This week it is our Top 5 Picard Episodes. He's arguably the greatest character in Trek history, guided by an unrivaled moral compass and leadership qualities. Our panel covers the major events and quiet moments in equal measure, unleashing quite a few surprises along the way. This is essential TrekRanks.

This is our eighth character deep dive and third overall captain, and as we do in every episode of this type, we ask our panel to choose one word to describe this Trek luminary as the show opens with our Level One Diagnostic Cycle. With an array of episodes to choose from, the Prime Directive portion of the show provides more detail on exactly how everyone is going to narrow their list down to just five picks.

In The Order of Things everyone reveals their "Five Words and a Hashtag" summary before naming their Picard Episode. And, as always, the picks get even more in depth when the crew calls up their Secondary Systems selections.

After a quick recap of all the picks in the Regeneration Cycle, the episode concludes with a visit into a Temporal Causality Loop as we play a couple of voicemails flashing back to a couple of previous episodes of TrekRanks.

As always, make sure to hail us at 609-512-LLAP (5527) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your Top 5 Picard Episodes. Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode. And your recording might also be considered an audition to potentially host a future episode of TrekRanks!
